Bridgetown, NJ-New Jersey officials issued a statewide Amber Alert for a missing 5-year-old girl who authorities say may have been abducted from a playground on Monday.
The child, Dulce Maria Alavez, may have been taken by a light-skinned, possibly Hispanic male, the Bridgeton Police department said. The possible suspect is described as between 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, with a thin build, no facial hair, and acne on his face. He was wearing orange sneakers, red pants, and a black shirt, police said.
The man drove off with Dulce in a red van with tinted windows and a sliding passenger side door.
Dulce was last seen wearing a yellow Hirt with a koala bear on the front, black and white checkered long pants with a flower design, and white sandals. She is 3-foot-5 and weighs 40 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Officers responded to the Bridgetown city park’s ball fields and playground area for a report of a missing child at about 4:50 p.m. Monday. The girl’s mother told police that Dulce was playing on swings with her 3-year-old returning to her vehicle without his sister, and she was unable to locate her daughter.
Police said to call 1-800-CALL-FBI with tips or information about the Amber Alert.
